AcceleratED

Education starts with empowerment.

February 20, 2019
AcceleratED is a one-day professional development conference focused on technology integration strategies for educational administrators.

A full day to explore, create and collaborate.

At AcceleratED, administrators attend hands-on workshops on a wide variety of relevant topics, led by hand-picked facilitators in small, personalized teaching and learning environments.

Curated Leadership

Curated Leadership

Facilitators are a driving force behind the hands-on culture of AcceleratED. Our facilitators are hand-picked and vetted with great care to ensure workshops of the highest quality.

Practical Strategies

Practical Strategies

Walk away with solutions, not just a to-do list. More than a list of tools, AcceleratED focuses on developing the skills and strategies needed to effectively integrate those tools into teaching and learning.

Collaborative Environment

Collaborative Environment

AcceleratED is a supportive community working together to improve education. Workshops are designed to be small, personalized environments where administrators can teach and learn collaboratively.

Time to Learn

Time to Learn

Administrators know that building real knowledge takes more than one class period, so AcceleratED’s sessions are longer to allow for in-depth discussion and collaboration that produces more developed strategies.

Change Takes a Team

Leaders are only as strong as the team supporting them. Administrators can empower their educators by bringing them to IntegratED, our conference for educators. IntegratED offers opportunities to learn and grow as a team, and to collaborate to develop practical strategies.

Administrators Pay One Price

Administrators that attend AcceleratED are invited to stay and attend IntegratED for only $70 more.

Joseph Herschert

Joseph Herscher

YouTube Personality
Kinetic Artist

YouTube personality and kinetic artist Joseph Herscher specializes in making useless yet comical machines. His absurdist contraptions use familiar objects in unfamiliar ways: books become dominoes, smashing a vase to scare a dog which pulls a leash – all to achieve a simple task, such as turning the page of a newspaper. His inventions have appeared on numerous television shows, from Jimmy Kimmel to Sesame Street. Joseph runs workshops with kids around the world, using humor, physics and undirected play to help foster the next generation of creative thinkers.

Katie Henry

Katie Henry

Director of Learning
BirdBrain Technologies

The world is Katie's classroom. Seriously. Earlier this year she gave workshops on three continents in three weeks. Formerly a classroom and STEAM teacher, Katie is a licensed principal and K-12 technology integrator who is passionate about breaking STEM stereotypes. Even though she's based in Pittsburgh, PA as the Professional Development Manager for BirdBrain Technologies, you'll usually find her in a classroom in another time zone.
